Save them somewhere on your drive first. Then use the "browse" button when you make a post to attach them.

Simply put, It's too big(meaning file size which is determined by the width and height of the pic in pixels).

The file should be no larger than 640 X 480 pixels.

You may need to resize some photos and shrink them. I personally use MS Photo Editor, though there are a million different pic editors.

If you have MS Photo Editor, click on "image" and then on "resize". Then save the picture under a new name so as to not overwrite the original.

recenly I've found some at 640x 380 to be too big. Seems like the ones with a lot of colors. I had o make it to about 600x350 to make it work.

WES311,
Resolution also comes into play. The higher the res the better it looks but more data it contains. Try sizing the file to 640 x 480 at 72 res. Be sure to use "Save As" and save it as .jpg under a new file name. (This way if you want to print your picture you can use the origional "high res" file.)

I think the file sizelimit on OSO is WAY TO SMALL.
I go on www.exriders.com forum and theres is about 901k but the oso one is sort of ALOT smaller its almost a pain to post pictures on this website. I just tried to upload more than 4 different pics and they were all to big, I think oso needs to make the uload size of the pics about 901k

BeeRock-

That 900K file size is NO GOOD! There is no reason for that! If a thread had 20 pictures in it that were that size, each and every time that someone looked at the thread, it would download the photos.....about 18Meg worth of data and would be slow as hell !!!!!!!!


Here is a photo example for you. It is less than 640x480 due to the vertical profile, but it is 480 high. I saved this photo with different quality (resolution) settings. I will post four copies of the same photos and indicate the file size for each. You will be able to see that on your screen, there isn't THAT much difference in the quality, and you can see what's going on in the photo.

This one is 44.8K in file size.
